The Tegra Note boasts a 7-inch 1280 x 800 resolution IPS display, 16GB of memory and dual-facing cameras (VGA webcam on the front, 5MP rear camera which promises 100-frame-per-second slow motion recording), while the Tegra 4 system-on-chip is tailored for gaming with a 72-core GeForce GPU and quad-core Cortex A-15 CPU.
The tablet will run the “latest version of the OS” — which presumably means Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, will offer a 10-hour battery life and grant access to Nvidia’s own TegraZone gaming portal – an area where gaming enthusiasts can find Tegra-optimized games.

HP has since confirmed that the device is now available and is shipping to online customers, although the official launch date of August 2013 would suggest that retail stores may have to wait a week for the Android tablet to arrive.
The SlateBook x2 costs $479.99 including a keyboard dock, and boasts some impressive specifications.
The slate has a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution display, a quad-core Tegra 4 processor, a 16GB solid-state drive and 2GB of system memory. It runs the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
